Andrew James Rothman
Professor Rothman is responsible for the development and management of the Rutgers Law Associates Fellowship Program on both campuses, coordinating its educational component, supervising all of the legal work performed, and serving as its Managing Attorney. He also teaches various upper-level courses including New Jersey Practice, Non-Profit Corporations, and Professional Responsibility, and has taught Advanced Contracts, Appellate Advocacy and Evidence, and for several years taught in the Community Law Clinic.

An eight-day intensive program in the Dominican Republic partners Rutgers Law School, Rutgers School of Physical Therapy and SPAA with Cambiando Vidas, an established 501(c)(3). Students will spend the mornings each day building the home and mingling with the community, and the afternoons and evenings in an intensive course in Non-Profit Corporations/Tax-Exempt Organizations. The course can be used to satisfy the law school skills requirement for graduation. To learn more, email:
